BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter currently in development at Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock (which sold over 4 million units worldwide). Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite introduces an entirely new narrative and gameplay experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky.
Former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt has been sent to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned in Columbia since childhood. Booker develops a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt must learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.
Initial looks at the game's scenario will have you thinking. 'It's Bioshock in the sky.' and to an extent you are correct, there are quire a few parallels to be made with the first game. Gone is the dark desolate sea areas of Rapture, Columbia is a lush vibrant place in the clouds, unfortunately after the initial hour this not only gets boring but it feels like it just wasn't expanded upon enough. Rapture you were almost always reminded of being stuck under the sea, trapped even. Yet in Columbia you end up in so many places that feel like regular areas on the ground. It quickly gets to the stage where you do not realise you are in the sky.
The plot in itself is confusing and it's almost impossible to review without spoiling something. Basically you are a guy named Booker who is on a quest to save a girl named Belle, I mean. Elizabeth. Who REALLY looks like Belle (No seriously. Watch the film and then look at her) and ends up caught up in a load of trouble along the way.
As in Bioshock fashion there are twists and turns, and the last hour really delivers. Unfortunately its like bookends. A great first few hours, great last hour. But the middle is rather mediocre. Resorting to 'padding' the story out to last longer with almost meaningless tasks. There was one time I had to go back and forth to the same area three times just to advance the plot, which was then never mentioned again in the entire game.
Returning is the Plasmids (Salts) and the Tonics (Gear) to mix and match however you always feel somewhat restricted. No amazing powerful builds by the end of the game in this one. However the weapons are the main problem. Gone are the fun weapons like the Crossbow or the Wrench or the Rail Gun, instead you get your generic Shotguns, Sniper Rifles etc. Like you've seen in every single FPS game ever. And you are now limited to two weapons, so all that ammo you are collecting is pointless.
There is also nothing to really challenge you. There are a whopping total of 5 different enemies in the entire game. And most of the unique ones appear once in a blue moon. Also I felt that the exploration part was gone. Remember how in the first game you would explore an area and fight maybe one or two enemies? Instead you are given large areas to explore with about 20-30 enemies. And there was always one that stayed alive to stop you from advancing the plot any further. Fights are also lacking much challenge due to you essentially having infinite ammo and health due to Elizabeth. Thankfully you don't have to worry about her getting shot since she cannot get hurt.
Not to say that the game is completely bad of course. It is quite fun the first playthrough, especially if you have managed to stay spoiler free. Unfortunately it feels like they took a step back and made it into a generic shooter with a fancy plot.
My recommendation if you can get Bioshock Infinite is to get a version that includes the first game too. Really makes the purchase so much more worthwhile. Otherwise it's a decent enough game hampered with too many problems and being far too overhyped for what it was.
Nice use of the landscape early in the game
Not having to worry about Elizabeth dying
Elizabeth is totally Belle.
Some decent plot elements
Too much filler
Way too overhyped
No Ballroom dancing with Belle and a Beast (ohhhh. That explains the songbird.)
Too many questions left unanswered.
Too much America
in infinite its 1912 and you play Booker Dewitt who has got deep in debt and needs to wipe the slate clean and the only way you can do this is go to the mysterious city of columbia and rescue a young girl called elizabeth and as you have been told bring us the girl and wipe away the debt.
The story starts with you on a boat with two people who turn out to be twins on the way to a light house which makes you have da ja view if you have played before. from here you are taken to the floating city of columbia which is the idea of comstock a man who's made him self in to a god of sorts making a floating city which is based on the america's founding fathers and is better than the america below the clouds with motorised horses and he's love of america.
when you are shot in to the clouds and you first see this iconic city you will be amazed. the city is very bright with blue sky's and full of people going about there business and speak to you.
you find elizabeth in a tower trapped and being watched by scientists, when you start playing she will travel with you around the city and will learn things with you as its new to her as you. this never feels forced like you have to baby sit her as you find out she helps you in battle giving you health ammo and other items and can bring in turrets and cover using tears that she can open
The game play is classic bio shock you use vigors and guns like pistols, shot guns and rifles , vigors are what plasmids used to be and use salts instead of eve there are also sky lines above that change the way you play hook on to one and zip up above and launch a ground strike knocking foes off the edge but the AI also use these as well chasing you about keeping you on your feet
you can wonder for ages and loot items and find audio books and get lost in this big city , you soon find out that you have got the new iconic song bird chasing you who is elizabeths protector and as always there is a big twist in the story to come
i think this could be contender for game of the year go buy now, you be glad you did

Just kidding, but unfortunately I can't watch the trailer. This is one of those games that I'm so excited for, I want to know absolutely nothing about it.
All I know, is a girl, a floating city, and erm, thats it. Bioshock 1 is one of the greatest games ever made. 2 was ok. Hopefully, this will match number 1! ”
Talk about gluttons for punishment. ”
